Bio

The son of Italian immigrants who owned and operated a grocery store in the East Bronx, where he worked after school, Joe is someone who has not only benefited from the promise of America but has also given something back. After working through school, Joe started his career at Arthur Andersen & Co. (1962-1984) where he achieved partner status at age 31. Throughout his life, Joe DioGuardi has maintained the highest level of personal integrity and service to the accounting profession—demonstrating vision, leadership, and commitment to the core principles of public accounting as well as local and national public service. He doesn’t just talk about doing things, he gets them done. He surprised everyone when he ran for Congress in 1984 in the 20th Congressional District, one of the heaviest Democratic districts in the country, and won in an upset. The first practicing Certified Public Accountant elected to Congress, Joe spent two terms in the House of Representatives (1985-1989) working to bring fiscal responsibility and financial accountability to Washington. He is the original author of the Chief Financial Officer and Federal Financial Reform Act (CFO Act) signed by President George H. W. Bush in 1990. The bill mandated the appointment of a CFO to each major department and agency of the U.S. government. Joe is now running for United States Senate representing New York State.
